ABOUT KS2 HISTORY

This title in our KS2 History is Easy series focuses on the historical eras of the Stone Age, Iron Age, and everything in-between (the Bronze Age!) This topic is a unique one in that it spans over 2 million years of human and natural history, so KS2 History is Easy: Stone Age to Iron Age has been created to be as clear and accessible as possible.

So, alongside the text, we have included a variety of diagrams and images aimed to keep the reader engaged and focused. To aid this engagement, numerous practice questions have been provided at the end of every chapter, to test your child’s learning and to cement their knowledge.

We hope this will allow your child to retain information throughout the read, which will culminate in a mock exam paper which you can use to get a sense of how your child’s learning is progressing.

WHY HISTORY IS TAUGHT AT PRIMARY SCHOOL LEVEL

History is on the primary syllabus in order to give children an introduction to the key events that have shaped Britain over time, and its place in the world as a whole.

Knowledge of these events will create an understanding of how and why the modern world has become what it is today, and inspire a deeper curiosity for learning about how societies and people’s lives have changed as time has passed.

How2Become KS2 History KS1 Key Focuses

KEY STAGE 1

Key focuses

  • Changes in national life within living memory.
  • Historical events beyond living memory, with national and/or international significance.
  • The lives of individuals who have contributed significant achievements.

KEY STAGE 1

Pupils should:

  • Develop an awareness of the past, using common words and phrases to describe the passage of time.
  • Know where the people and events they study fit within a chronological framework, and identify similarities and differences between ways of life in different periods.
  • Use a wide vocabulary of everyday historical terms.
  • Ask and answer questions, choosing and using parts of stories and other sources to show that they know and understand key features of events.
  • Understand some of the ways in which we find out about the past, and identify different ways in which it is represented.

  • The Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England, up to the time of Edward the Confessor.
  • A local history study (this will of course vary from school to school.)
  • A study of an aspect or theme in British history that extends pupils’ chronological knowledge beyond 1066. (E.g. the changing power of monarchs – using case studies such as John, Anne, and Victoria.)
  • The achievements of the earliest civilisations, such as Ancient Egypt or Ancient China.
  • Ancient Greece, its achievements, and its influence on the western world.
  • A non-European society that provides contrasts with British history, such as early Islamic civilisation, or the Mayan civilisation.

  • Continue to develop a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of local, British, and world history.
  • Use a wide vocabulary of everyday historical terms.
  • Establish clear narratives within and across the studied historical periods.
